    • The better Nubus cards were sold for specific tasks and gaming was not one of them.    http://www.ralentz.com/old/mac/hardware/dale-adams/video-quad700-900.html   Has some interesting information of the Q700/Q9x0 video.   For gaming of that era moving bytes around in RAM is all that was needed (high bandwidth) and built in video was the fastest for that.
    • I just want to thank OleLila for the PowerBook 165 I got off of him about a week ago! The capacitors came in from DigiKey today and after about an hour and a half of work, I once again have a working PowerBook! I have to find a solution for the drive though, it doesn't sound like it is long for this world. There is nothing on it except a 7.1 System folder. It only has 4MB so I'll be putting 6.0.8 once a permanent storage solution is found.
    • So tonight after a lot of YouTubing, I decided to put my new soldering iron (smaller tip and temp control) to the test and cleaned up the board with some flux and copper wick. My solder paste arrives tomorrow and I want to give that a go. 
        Does this look like a good place to start? My technique isn’t the greatest... before and after pics attached.
